Peacrastination

The seed package for my peas says that peas can be planted in February.  Although this seems early, I planted last year’s peas in February and they grew well. This year I am going to try using some inoculant – Rhizobium bacteria –  to increase the yield.  This last week has been bright and freezing, my favorite weather, but the temperature has discouraged me from getting out there and planting anything, because I just don’t want the peas to freeze.

According to the Farmer’s Almanac astrological timetable (http://www.almanac.com/bestdays/timetable) the next best days to plant above ground vegetables are March 13 and 14.  I don’t think I will wait that long.
